KJS Graphic Design Submission

Process

  1. Send us an email to business@keepjamminrecords.com

    • Subject line should say "KJS Graphic Submission"

    • Tell us your full name, a short description of your graphic, and have your Preliminary Design attached.
       

  2. Await our response

    • Patience, it takes us a while to review all of this glorious content.

    • If we like the design, we will send you some feedback for corrections and engage in contract negotiations.

    • Start working on the Final Design. Once done, we can register the graphic and initiate the project it's involved in.
       

  3. Negotiate and Sign, then BOOM! You're a Keep Jammin' Designer!
